Join the walkout on October 5th!!
HEre’s the info on the protest:
On October 5, people everywhere will walk out of school, take off work, and come to the downtowns & townsquares and set out from there, going through the streets and calling on many more to join us – making a powerful statement: “NO! THIS REGIME DOES NOT REPRESENT US! AND WE WILL DRIVE IT OUT!”
Momentum builds for Oct. 5:
This is on the “World Can’t Wait” Portal Page:
YOUR GOVERNMENT, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.YOUR GOVERNMENT is openly torturing people, and justifying it.
YOUR GOVERNMENT puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.
YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.
YOUR GOVERNMENT suppresses the science that doesn’t fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.
YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.
YOUR GOVERNMENT enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.
People look at all this and think of Hitler – and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come.
I would bet a Venti Latte that this “walk out” doesn’t happen on a large enough scale for anyone to notice. Apathy and Complacency are rampant in America. If this were the 70’s there would be protesters on every corner, but here we are so absorbed in our gadgets and overpriced coffee. I admit, I won’t be joining the walk out. Why? Because the words “Thousands More” in support of the protest tells me that this is going to be a waste of time.
The Revolution Will Be Blogged, I tell you!!! The net is the saviour of our country. That and maybe some rogue ninja strike force. 😉
